Unfortunately, this estate in California has already sold. Otherwise, you know I’d be there to buy it at $6,500,000.00! I’m such a silly dreamer.
This home, in the historic Quapaw Quarter of Little Rock, Arkansas, was built in 1922. I love that the current owner, Cassie Toro, has refurbished it while keeping as much of the original beauty as possible.
Some years ago, I fell in love with Louise Brooks’ Connecticut home in Traditional Home magazine. I’m such a sucker for delft tile like that which surrounds her fireplace. I love the botanicals on each side of the fireplace and the chintz fabric on the chair.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but our temperatures this week are so much more pleasant than what we are accustomed to in July. So, when I got home from work, I decided that we’d sit on the back porch to enjoy one of our favorite summertime meals.
